More Op Shop purchases...

Last week Curlypops and I were galavanting around the countryside, visiting Op Shops when I found this Retro Kitchen Cabinet. I paid the nana at the counter and then Mr S and I headed back a few days later to pick it up with the trailer.







I love the orange laminate, the white pressed plasticy back...
The drawers are still in the van so I couldn't get a picture of them...
This was to be sold on but I have fallen in love with it so it stays and another cabinet I have in the lounge room will be sold instead..

I also find The Womens Weekly Cookbooks at the Oppy, this one set me back $1.00 at an Op Shop in Daylesford.....
